fiulijn (15210) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport), as Freeride IPA
Cloudy golden color. Aroma of hops, a bit earthy (manure), feety, fruity. Smooth mouthfeel; the malt profile is light, leaving room to the hops, but the hops could be more fruity and biting...
Ordinary IPA.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2013
On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a lightly hazy dark golden body and a small, dense off-white head. The aroma has some caramel maltyness, but it’s the hops that dominates. Pine cones and some citrus notes. Quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation, medium to full body. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and towards the end. Pine cones and some hop pellets. Not bad at all, but it’s somehow boring anyway. 131112
